Course path options are diverse. Depending on the area of interest, classes are available to those with a high school diploma and above. Courses can range in duration from a single semester to three years.

What is a course in law studies? It is a course that covers the theory, principles and practice of law, and may serve as a stepping stone in obtaining a degree or fulfilling continuing education needs. Advanced and specialist degrees may later be attained to prepare individuals to practice law in specific countries, and to pinpoint niche areas of study. Course topics may include international business law, criminology and psychology. Students can learn how international court systems and tribunals function in conjunction with local and national jurisdictions, or even the basics of banking law, which teaches the regulatory framework of international banking.

Individuals enrolled in law studies courses gain skills that are transferable, enabling them to choose from a diverse selection of specialties. Reasoning and critical thinking skills may enable uniquely crafted discussions. Attention to detail allows the drafting of precise documents while concise verbal explanations can be delivered. 

Courses in law studies are offered worldwide. Due to the breadth of class materials and course lengths, cost varies from one institution to another. Prospective students should research schools offering the course of choice and contact them for updated registration and related fees.

Employment opportunities for persons with degrees in law studies are diverse and include professions such as attorneys, law clerks, data analysts and paralegals. There are also many careers outside the legal profession that could benefit from a law studies course, including reporters, social workers, policy developers and human resources directors. For those who prefer to stay in the educational system, teachers, professors and union representatives utilize the transferable skills in that arena.  

Educational institutions offer flexible options for students. Electronic forms, online classes and full- and part-time options enable working professionals to continue their education anywhere in the world. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
